The Vernonia Loggerbots hosted an Open House on February 15th. The Loggerbots are preparing to compete for the third year in the FIRST Robotics regional competition. Last year the Vernonia team finished a very surprising 3rd out of 59 teams. The Loggerbots invited the community to see their newest creation as they were putting on the final touches, as well as their robots from the past two years. They also demonstrated their newest acquisition, a 3D printer. They showed video of their team from the competition last year, as well as a video that showed this year’s challenge. Team member Kaitlyn Eyrrick acted as MC and directed visitors to different areas of interest as well as narrating the video. Other members of the team demonstrated the older robots, were available to answer questions and worked with project mentors as they assembled and tested their newest robot.
